The Paper Players #501 and Color Throwdown #604 - Holiday Greetings

Today's card is for The Paper Player's Sketch Challenge #501 and Color Throwdown #604 using Terracotta, Black and White.  I inked the Deer and then kissed them with the larger floral Deer from the same stamp set and this created a more textured look.  Die cut the Deer and stamped the background and white embossed the Sentiment on black card.  Sourced some Designer Paper and finished off the front to look like the Sketch.  There was a reference to Terracotta on the Color Throwdown so I went with that color, but the color swatch appears to be more caramel, hope it is okay.

With thanks to Stef this card received A Cut Above Award.
So glad you dropped by, lovely to see you here.
